    Very neat story. I like hearing when NFL players do things like this.

    Was on TV, not only did he give his money, he gave his time, effort, and compassion. I did not know about this, and was really surprised that Braylon wast he one behind this. Most of his publicity is negative, and this was a very nice view on some positive and outstanding things he's done.

    I usually catch on pretty quickly, but since I don't watch Office, this one flew over my head. What did I miss?

    from what I remember...

    Michael Scott did the same thing to an underprivileged elementary school and when all the students did what they had to do, Michael Scott didn't have the money to send them becasue he thought it would never happen, at least not all of them...

    Former 49ers wide receiver Braylon Edwards cleared waivers today. He now is a free agent.

    Braylon has hands worse than Jacoby Jones. Thanks but no thanks.

    Really? I find that kind of hard to believe. You're saying that somehow with hands worse than Jacoby "I can't catch shit" Jones Braylon Edwards has managed to hang around the league for 7 years, catch 341 balls, score 39 touchdowns, and managed a 1200 yard - 80 catch season in 2007.

    I'm not buying it. Now maybe he's not the receiver that the Browns thought he would be when they drafted him but his career being what it is demonstrates that he's clearly better than Jacoby Jones.

    I would not be upset if the Texans made him an offer. He is without any doubt better than just about every WR on the Texans roster past Andre Johnson. It wouldn't change the fact that we need to draft a WR badly but I'd be curious to see what Edwards could do on the same field as Andre Johnson & Kevin Walter.

    The Forty-Niners cut Edwards even though they only had two healthy WR's other than him on the roster (Crabtree and Brett Swain) and are getting ready for their first playoff run since 2002.

    I don't know why they cut him, but whatever it was ain't good, and I don't want any part of him.

    He is injured and not helping anyone right now. Knee injury in week 2, shoulder injury in week 9. I don't think the Texans should have claimed him (what would be the point) but if they brought him in and worked him out once he got healthy I wouldn't be upset and if they took a shot like the 49ers did (basic incentive filled contract that wouldn't come back and bite them in the ass) I'd be fine with it.
